On Wednesday 2nd November at 7.30pm we will keep the Commemoration of the Faithful Departed – come and join a reflective service of Holy Communion to remember those we love but see no more.
At that service, and at Evening Prayer during that week, the names of those who have died will be read aloud in the Church and held in prayerful remembrance. If you would like to add a name to the list, please email the Vicar.
Thanks to all from Church and School who contributed to the wonderful harvest offering, which has now been delivered to the Food Bank at Minstead Gardens. Thus we give thanks for all the good gifts we receive, and show our love for others, as Christ loved us.
The Funeral of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
On the eve of the Funeral, 6.30pm Sunday 18th September, there was a reflective service of readings, prayers, and music and afterwards we shared refreshments, and those who remained kept the Silence together at 8pm.
On the day of the Funeral, Monday 19th September, the bell tolled for an hour from 10am. At 11am the Funeral was shown on a screen in the Church, and many gathered to watch it together.
The Church was open during the day through the period of mourning for those who wanted to come in and reflect, pray, light a candle, or write something in the book of condolence.
May she rest in peace, and rise in glory.
Huge thanks to all who made our Easter Services so glorious!
Sunday 24th we come down to earth with our Annual Meeting (to elect Churchwardens) and Annual Parochial Church Meeting (for other business of the Parish). Anyone on the electoral roll can participate, and in addition anyone who is registered to vote in civil elections in the Parish can participate int eh Annual Meeting. The agendas are here. At the APCM will be asked to approve the Annual Report and Accounts, which have been commended to the APCM by the PCC. A copy is herewith.
And in general … welcome to Holy Trinity!
Come as you are. All are welcome. 10am on Sunday is our main service. We sing five hymns, and some of the other words of the service. We hear the Bible read, we hear a sermon, we pray together, and we celebrate Holy Communion. It lasts just over an hour. Afterwards there are refreshments and chat. Then at about ten to twelve we head down to the top of Danebury Avenue for Prayers for Ukraine.
There is much more to belonging to Church than Sunday worship – we serve one another, we serve the community, we build up friendships, we strive together to live well. But the best way is in is usually to come and join in worship and meet everyone over tea or coffee afterwards. All are welcome.
